Shave off!

Sultans of Shave
11, North Canal Road

HOURS: Monday to Friday 10:30am - 9pm

PRICES: Two types of shaves, the "Deluxe Shave" which costs $40 and the "Sultan's Shave" which costs $60.

Opened by three friends who decided that they wanted to start an upscale barber while they were still young and energetic, this four-month-old establishment bills itself as a space where men can "pamper themselves and network".


The shop itself is tastefully furnished with a plush, custom-made sofa. Owner Lewis Lim, 27, tells TNPS: "We are not only selling a service but we are selling an experience." Part of that experience is luxury.

The shop has four fully swivelling black leather barber chairs. The shaving room is decorated with an industrial theme. The floor is bare concrete with squares of parquet panels. The lower half of the wall is covered in diamond- shaped slick-black tiles. Customers can check out their haircuts on the tall golden-edged mirrors.
